Sample Essay

A study in the international journal of obesity followed a group of 100 school children from the time when they were enrolled in preschool to early adolescence. The study was published in 2003 and the author found that “television watching was an independent predictor of change in the child’s BMI” and other measures of obesity. They concluded that “television watching is a risk factor for change in body fat, not simply reflective of more obese children tending to watch more television as a consequence of their obesity” (Proctor, 2003).

While a more recent analysis also came to the same conclusion in a study of 2,800 children aged 12 and under. This study also found a non-linear relationship between weight and children playing video games. The playtime in children in the higher weight range was found to be moderate while those in the lower weight range were found to play very little or a lot (Vandewater. E, 2004).

Another article from the Australian Journal of Early Childhood found that pre-teens play computer based video-games on an average of three hours per day. This was an hour more than teens that played for 2 hours per day and young adults who played for an hour a day (Clayton, 2003).
